Garbage in Costa Rica: Another Commission

litter2

A year into its tenure, the government of Costa Rica has announced the formation of a joint committee to study a national plan for recycling and recovery of waste.

In another grim example of the difficulties faced by rulers in Costa Rica to make executive decisions on public works, existing plans – which are currently on hold, and will probably disappear – for investment in the waste management and recycling sector, including generating power from them, due to the fact that the current government has decided to start from scratch with the formation of a committee to “develop strategies” on the topic.

As if there were not already enough information on his issue, and as if the respective participants and those responsible had not expressed themselves sufficiently in this respect. It is the same case with the commission on energy introduced by this government.

Of course the formation of a commission could communicate that something is being done, and in particular dilute in a collective the unfulfilled responsibilities of the executive power.

From a statement issued by the Ministry of Health in Costa Rica:

The Ministry of Health has initiated the construction process of the National Strategy on Separation, Recovery and Waste Recovery, together with the Ministry of Environment and Energy, the Business Association for Development (AED), and the Alliance for the Development of recoverable Waste.
